The state of mental health care in Ghana is still a major challenge, especially at the Pantang Psychiatric Hospital.
Pantang Hospital is one of the leading mental health facilities in Ghana. The hospital, however, is in a sorry state of disrepair.
The buildings are dilapidated, the wards are overcrowded, and the facilities are inadequate. Patients are often forced to sleep on the floor, and there is a shortage of basic necessities such as food and clothing.
The staff at Pantang Hospital are also overworked and underpaid. They often have to deal with difficult and dangerous patients, and they lack the resources to provide adequate care.
The sorry state of Pantang Psychiatric Hospital is a reflection of the low priority that is given to mental health care in Ghana. Mental health is still stigmatized in Ghana, and there is a lack of awareness of the importance of mental health care.
